Hundreds of thousands may be affected after a new type of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Post-Covid Syndrome In Germany, according to an estimate released on Monday, MTI writes.
According to expert surveys, 10 percent of those infected with SARS-CoV-2 develop long-term residual complaints. This represents at least 350,000 people based on 3.5 million recorded infections.
That’s an incredibly large number
– In her briefing in Berlin, Anya Karlichik, Minister of Education and Scientific Research was featured.
He pointed out that no one can know who and why he may develop intractable symptoms after overcoming the virus, such as frequent headaches, persistent shortness of breath and extreme fatigue.
He explained that the data so far indicates that the syndrome occurs regardless of the course of infection and the previous health status of the infection, so it often spreads to people who were at full strength and did not even notice SARS-Cov-2 entering their bodies. Patients sometimes leave work for months.
The syndrome does not even have a generally accepted name and definition. This also justifies gathering the knowledge accumulated to date and supporting further research.
This is the purpose of the federal government’s new program, Anya Karlichik said, with a budget of five million euros (1.75 billion Ft), which mainly encourages a more comprehensive exploration of the syndrome’s characteristics and the development of therapeutic approaches.
Under the provincial and state government regulation and funding for scientific research, the head of the Department of Federal Education Support said a network had already been established last year to combine research into SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19). The work of the network of 36 university clinics is supported by the federal government with an amount of € 150 million, which is supplemented by the new program.
